Does taking yardage reductions ultimately improve your chances of winning at caps? The best handicap shooters are on the 27 - obviously. Are they the best because they hit a stopping point and were then able to stay there and master it? If so, are you better off going back and forth or should you stick at a certain yardage until you master it and then move on? I ask this because I have seen AA 27 yard shooters who don't shoot well from the mid yardages.

In theory, taking a reduction improves your chance of winning because for most individuals, averages decline as yardage increases. Long term is anyone guess, the current ATA handicap system has worked for the largest number of shooters. TRUE 27ydAA shooters can hit from anywhere; they've proven it. Their average will be very high at any yardage given a little practice to get the timing down. Refusing reductions is a good personal choice for a person who can "tough it out" and commit to improvement, but after a year or so, c'mon.
